Yes. It may be necessary to purchase a conversion kit if the original kit was not retained.
Still cheaper thean a new range.

I want to convert my Samsung FX510BGS gas range to propane


You have to order from a Samsung supplier GPL type nozzles for each burner, including the oven and replace the original who was factory installed.

How do I know orifice in right burner


This is kind of hard to answer, You need good eyes or a magnifying glass. Was the range converted from natural gas to LPG (propane) or reverse? Basically, the larger the burner, the larger the hole in the oriface. If in doubt, you can try swapping 2 of them. (Use a 5mm socket).

I noticed soot in my lp gas oven that had been clean. concerned when it started to ruin my food I decided to run the self cleaning cycle again. My whole house filled with toxic soot. My eyes were on fire...


Normally soot is from a range that hasn't been converted for the gas type, like natural or propane. It may be set up for natural when you're on propane or visa versa. Has this range ever worked properly without sooting?

How can you tell if a 1985 wolf range burnes gas or propane? it says propane, but we bought it saying it was for gas? And how much would it cost to change out? Thanks, Mary Kaye


Most ranges are easy to convert from propane to gas or vice versa. If there is a gas regulator installed on the back gas inlet, you could see if it is running 3-6" WC or 10-12" WC, The latter is for propane. If no regulator is present the orifice sizes will need to be checked. Propane has a higher caloric value than natural gas so the orifices are smaller. One way to see would be to install the oven. If the orifices are for propane and you are using natural gas there will be too little flame. I would estimate a conversion would cost no more than $250.00 to $300.00 depending on where you are. I would hire a professional to verify. I know it is expensive but the technician will be able to check your older oven (1985) for potentially dangerous gas leaks etc while he is there.

Range is 15 years old, used with propane. Now


Yes. For the oven, it is usually 3 full revolutions CCW. (easiest to count 12 one quarter turns with an open end wrench) Make sure to go through and reverse all LP conversion steps, including the regulator adjustment.

I am not sure of the model number of my Garland gas range (propane) I bought it in 1970 from a farmer who had purchased it at a restaurant sale. It is OLD. (so am I) I have had trouble for years with the ovens going off at times and not relighting immediately. The right oven especially.
In the last 35 years I have had the thermocouplers replaced twice, the safety valves twice, and new pilots twice. The last time these were replaced was 6 months ago by a repairman who said this was the problem. Very spendy. The ovens still would go out. I had a thought (and related it to the repairman) that perhaps there wasn't enough air circulation to the oven burners (the top burners and grill worked fine) He said there was plenty of air getting to the ovens. Two weeks later I had my son help me move the stove out another 4" from the wall and I have not had one bit of problem with the ovens since.
You can buy new fire bricks for the grill at a heating shop. I am having trouble with the thermostats now, they don't regulate the ovens to coincide with the settings. I will have them replaced next.
Every one thinks I should just get a new stove. No way. This is a great old stove, I love it.

GAS RANGE


Msmaytag it sounds like the oven wasn't converted properly if at all to propane. If you look at the bake burner while the oven is on you should see very little yellow on the flame. If you see mostly yellow, try adjusting the air to more open. This will changed the air/fuel and may resolve the issue. If not, follow the directions for converting to propane and see if the orfice hood was either replaced or tightened down. I am not quite as familiar with the maytag is why I ask you to follow the directions. The issue with propane is that it runs at 10wc instead of the 5wc of natural gas. So double the pressure, you need more air to thin the fuel. Hope this helps.
